Pros

I've had a very positive experience. The help desk was able to respond to some of my questions pretty quickly, I like the functionality and my emails look good.

DW

Daniel W.

Mailchimp is very great software. I like how it's easy to interface, and how you can clean the data.

MS

Mohamad S.

I like how Mailchimp keeps track of my audience and helps me categorize them for different types of emails. I also like being able to create appealing and interactive emails for my viewers.

MD

Melissa D.

Pros

I love the feature where you can resend your email to a batch of subscribers who didn't open the first email. I also love that they recommend exactly when your email will most likely be opened.

EC

Erin C.

The best thing that i like about this software is its ability to segment audience quickly and exporting information to database from external sources.

I love the templates and options for sending and then resending when the first isn't opened. I love the helps to increase percentage of readers too.

Cons

I have had instances where the emails sometimes end up in the spam folder or promotions folder, which can be annoying and needs to be figured out.

RI

RABEE I.

Mailchimp is used by many which means that spam filters are more likely to tag your emails as spam. I did not have any other problems with Mailchimp.

AM

Antonio M.

For a company that's been around as long as Mailchimp has, it's crazy to me how bad the UX/UI is. It's just hard to use so much of the time.

Cons

I HATE that you have to break up the text to add photos - if they insist that photos have to be full-width, just do that, it was a dumb decision to force user to add a new text box after every photo.

We have had a lot of small issues with Robly. The most concerning issues being emails never arriving to subscribers and emails going directly into spam folders.

The 500 lb Gorilla (get it?)

Reviewed 7 months ago

Our web team drove the move to Mail Chimp from Constant Contact and Robly because it is easier for them to build campaigns to capture email addresses using Mail Chimp. As a user and administrator, I prefer the other solutions' interfaces.

Pros

Mail Chimp integrates with nearly all common CRM platforms. It (along with Constant Contact) is the standard, and as such, it is the most supported email campaign manager for other systems. I like it most for its ease of integration with other systems.

Cons

What is a bummer is the cost scaling as you add contacts as well as the lack of free unlimited images. Both of which I had with Robly. However, with Robly, it is difficult to integrate...For small businesses, you will have to make a choice: use a well-known system like Mail Chimp or Constant Contact to make it easier to integrate with other solutions and build a campaign. Or use something like Robly which is less expensive, but not as easy to integrate. ALL systems let you port over your current mailing lists.

Terrible service, over priced and features are minimal

Reviewed 5 years ago

The service is shocking and the staff rude - and they don't like to talk on the phone, so you have to wait for an email reply. its much more expensive than its competitors and it hasn't got as many useful fractures as other sites. i have used it in 3 different companies now and all three times have found that is is much easier than so many of its competitors that companies assume that its the best, but when they experience Robly they realize just how many functions and features MailChimp is lacking. It is easy to use but is also over priced.

Pros

its easy to use and it brand name is well known

Cons

It is expensive. It doesn't have features such as fast and easy to use integration to websites It doesn't have the ability to resend campaigns to unopened emails automatically 7 days after the original sent. or the ability to track the opening times and have each email delivered into the recipients email box at the time they are most likely to open it.

Easy to use, administers mailing lists reliably

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It has many of the same features of my favorite (MailChimp), but serves mailing lists more reliably. MailChimp started ending up in spam filters after a bit. This one never has.

Cons

There are little design things I'd like to see fixed. Dropping in rich text, links disappear and need to be manually re-entered. Getting images in is awkward. The image box always ends up at the end of the newsletter then needs to be moved up to where you actually want it.

Unique!

Reviewed 3 years ago

At the end of the day, the proof is in the stats, and I've seen better opens and engagements when sending with Robly than I have with other comparable email systems!

Pros

I've used a lot of mail management softwares over the years, and this is the first I've encountered with a feature like the OpenGen tech used by Robly. The fact that it automatically re sends campaigns with a different subject line is a huge time saver and a great feature in general. I've seen dramatically different open rates with the use of this tool.

Cons

Compared to the more common choices (Mailchimp) etc, I found Roblys actual email creation tool to be a bit lacking. It just takes a lot more work to get an email looking as nice as I can, in less time, in Mailchimp.

Excellent tools and support comes with a price

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

OpenGen allows you to send emails out to your database that did not open the email the first time. Robly AI identifies the best times to send emails to people.

Cons

Robly has strict policies on the quality of email lists you import. The price is high when compared to Mailchimp. I don't quite understand the price difference and why it is so hugely different. MailChimp allows you to send unlimited emails to unlimited contacts for some $ a month with full support. Whats the real difference here?

Overall a very good product with very good customer service

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were originally with MailChimp but it was not user friendly so we decided to do a trial with Robly. The setup was easy, customer support is great and we love the AI/2nd send (I forgot the name of the feature). The result has been that we use Robly much more than we used MailChimp and it has led to increased feedback from our customers and increased sales.

Pros

Ease of use. Great for the average user.

Cons

The setup to deal with cleaning the email lists that were imported.. it might be nice to get that as a free feature for initial list. Our initial list was internal but due to mailchimp being hard to use it wasn't easy to know what was still good (due to the fact that we didn't use mailchimp much due to complexity.

Fantastic! - better than MailChimp

Reviewed 6 years ago

I used to be with Mailchimp, but Robly has utterly surpassed my expectations and have blown MailChimp out of the water. Easy to use, great and unique features as well as fantastic customer service when ever I had a question. With the 'OpenGen'm 'Robly's Exit-Intent Pop-Up' and 'Robly A.I.' I couldn't recommend it more.

Pros

The customer service - I feel like i can contact customer service with an issue at anytime with any question and I know that I will get a quick and helpful response. Robly A.I. - This is going to a fantastic help and I can't wait to use this feature more. OpenGen - With our company's diverse customer basis this is a fantastic resource and a great time saver.

Cons

i would like to attach bigger pdf's to the emails and to much clicking to get an image into the email. Although i think this it just because i used to use MailChimp and i need to get used to Robly. I would also like to be able to make and edit segments easier.

Developing Quickly

Reviewed a year ago

They've helped us get the job done and helped us clean what started as a very old list of data.

Pros

Cheaper and simple. Years ago when we started they didn't have a lot of bells and whistles. You can tell they've done a ton of developing since and are growing.

Cons

Lesser known means not as many integrations with other software. You will always find people working with mailchimp or constant contact but rarely would find these guys on the list.

Similar to Mailchimp

Pros

I think the drag and drop features are more intuitive than MailChimp a slight bit. I'm still wondering if I should switch our company back because the platform doesn't link to Salesforce.

Cons

I think there are a lot more bugs in using Robly. Things freeze a lot more than Mail Chimp. The pricing is comparable to MailChimp so I am not sure the differences is worth switching to MC.

Easiest and most effective email system

Reviewed 6 years ago

Robly has made creating professional looking email templates easier than ever. Their OpenGen and Robly A.I. have been powerful tools in increasing open rates and click rates. It was well worth the switch from Mailchimp.

Pros

Very easy to create/edit professional looking email templates. Drag and drop is perfect. Also, OpenGen and Robly A.I. are really great tools as well!

Cons

The system seemed a bit buggy when we initially began using Robly. We were close to turning back to Mailchimp but your great customer support helped to get us set up. We haven't experienced any issues since the initial setup.

My favorite email software! GREAT customer service!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Really happy with the product, results, price, and customer service.

Pros

I started using Robly right when it came out, after using Constant Contact and Mailchimp both. Robly, to me, is by far the best option for the price. They have some cool features and their prices are reasonable. The customer service is really good as well.

Cons

Like all email blast software I've tried, it can be a little quirky at times. Spaces where they shouldn't be, colors doing weird things. Generally if I sign out and get back on, I can fix the issue. Again, I've found this is true of all email blast programs that I've used.

Robly is affordable, easy to navigate, and provides quality reports. I had no thoughts of switching from MailChimp when the Robly sales team called me last year.

Robly crushes the competition

Reviewed 3 years ago

Our company used Constant Contact, and then MailChimp, as our email newsletter manager. I almost never accept unsolicited sales calls but the representative from Robly was so personable and knowledgeable of the product, I had to check it out. I am glad I did. In addition to having a superior product, their customer service has been excellent. They are quick to respond to questions and aren't satisfied until you are.

Pros

Robly is extremely easy to use and provides an excellent value for those with a tight budget. Generating analytic reports (open rates, clickthrough rates, etc) is simple. Segmenting lists by user interaction is also a breeze.

Cons

I have not had a negative experience with Robly.

Robly - Best Choice for Small Business

Reviewed 2 years ago

I'm a career salesperson with a startup in the Salesforce market, and Robly has been invaluable in enabling me to prospect a new product. Their chat-based support is pretty responsive, and generally is able to address issues and concerns.

Pros

I originally chose Robly in 2016 because its campaign editor was more WYSIWYG than MailChimp or ConstantContact, both of which had anomalies show up after you had created a piece that were difficult to resolve. They have recently redesigned their UI, which took some getting used to, but the service still has excellent HTML fidelity and usability. The "OpenGen" function was the first I saw on the market. It allows you to automatically resend a piece to just the contacts who did not open the original. I enable OpenGen for every campaign, and always pick up a couple new leads.

Cons

Setting up Branding with Robly was a little challenging with two different vendors for email and website. They have also recently become MUCH more stringent in email addresses that they will accept. They pretty much require you to run addresses through a verification service like NeverBounce, and will disqualify addresses that the service marks as "accept all" (vs Valid) EVEN if you know from correspondence that it is a valid email address.
